I would love to find one of those Postal Gift boxes. I have the set, missing men, and have restored the two vans. The call box is original. If I could just find the men and box I would be set. Those are nice scores. Were they very expensive?

No they wasnt expensive at all I got them from a bankruptcy auction and the guide said £40 and I got them for £49 along with some early 70s catalogues

nice find, and those cars and trucks are fairly common. Usually run into a dozen orso on eBay.

Do you mean re-paints as a 920 Guy Warrior Heinz  even without a box can be as much as £300 and an unboxed 919 Robertsons Golden Shred Guy van wont be much cheaper as I think I will be looking for re-paints because they are much cheaper and will keep the bank manager happy ;)

really that much??? Take it slow...

was thinking more about the #299 Post Offices Services set, got both those cars in mint and hardly paid more than ten bucks combined.

the accessories of the phone box are a bit pricier.

Won\'t even try for Heinz - its way too rare.

Golden Shred I\'ve never seen - so ultra rare.

Seen plenty of the AA motorcycles with sidecars that are not too high. Only the competition is.

The Vega bus... they start low and sell high. its a little more common.

But if you go for absolute mint... Good Luck.

I dont think i will get some mint examples way too expensive I have heard that you can get white metal copies of the 920 Guy van but dont know if they are still available or who produced them anyone know??

oh, in that case there usually will be a playworn truck coming up every so often.

ok, Item number: 290410770908 goes to a damaged \'eveready\' Guy Van.

Could be worth renovating to either or. needs doors and a bit of welding.
